I read this book after seeing Lou pick it up in the library in Me Before You . I truly wish she'd been able to convince Will to live and maybe research some of Francisco's amazing accomplishments. It would have made an excellent sequel. Sadly it wasn't meant to be.
Awesome book, I will read it again.
My favorite part of this book is the constant goal setting Francesco does. At each stage and with goals that even to him at times felt small, he continued. He did not stop, and while he had support, no one was dragging him along. He was setting his coursed and often dragging others with him to support his journey.
The one negative review of this book has a point in that Francesco had wonderful support, which many people facing this don't. This does not take away from what Francesco achieved, and Francesco gives his parents, siblings and friends all the credit in the world. That reviewer misses the point of the book. With or without financial resources, the determination to believe that things can improve is what put Francesco where he was. I am sure that most of the people Francesco met on his journey had less resources than him, and were fighting as he was to get to a better place. Hooray for Francesco's success, which will inspire many more to follow. Do not accept what is given to you. Work to change it, even when it seems hopeless.
The aftermath of difficult times or a life changing event, sometimes brings out the worst in people/families. This was not the case with the Clark family. They pulled together. it was helpful, that the family was affluent...but even so the high cost of care was a factor to be reckoned with.
The first 2/3's of the book was very good. The last 1/3 was a let-down, as it focused way too much on the botonical skin cream business that Francesco (successfully) launched. It was like reading an info-mercial. I even looked up Clark Botonical products...but found they are WAY out of my budget.
I wish Franscesco the best..I hope he continues to improve. I admire his parents. I hope the future is bright for all of them.
It was an easy read, as the story flowed quite well and was engaging. I was sorry when it ended, as I'd love to know how Francesco Clark will move forward from this point. I hope that he writes a sequel book or at least updates us.
As his primary care giver, this book brought me comfort, hope, and renewed determination to continue his aggressive therapy. The doctors truly don't know what miracles can (and do) occur.
Thanks Checco, for sharing your inspirational story with me.
